Big Ben on the 102.5 WDVE Morning Show

“He should get in no doubt about it. The Super Bowl play. Iconic. Just put a picture of him running the ball back behind his bust and he’s in.” — Ben, on James Harrison going into the Hall of Fame.

By Stuart Miller-Davis, SteelerNation.com:

Former 2x Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger firmly believes that Harrison does deserve to have his name called in February when the 2024 class is chosen.

Roethlisberger jumped on the 102.5 WDVE Morning Show with Billy Gardell and laid out his case for why he believes Harrison should be a lock. He said that the interception Harrison made on Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII is a big reason why.

There are many factors the selection committee has to weigh when trying to decide who gets into the Hall. Longevity is one, and career numbers are another one, but having one of the most iconic plays in league history has got to count for something.

Roethlisberger said that as an offensive player on the sidelines, he hasn’t seen very many players that can change the game like Harrison did, though he did say that current Steeler TJ Watt is showing him that. He’s also grateful that outside of two games in 2013 when Harrison was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals, he got to watch Harrison ply his trade rushing the passer in a Steelers uniform.

“Any third down, anytime that guy dropped back to pass, you’re thinking we might get the ball,” Roethlisberger explained about Harrison. “Because he’s either making the guy throw it fast, or he’s hitting him so hard, he loses his head or the ball.”

Harrison was an incredibly menacing force on the football field. His bone-crushing hits earned him a reputation for being one of the toughest players to face in the league. The Steelers knew that and would send him after the opposing team’s best players to try to intimidate them, or just simply knock them out.

Roethlisberger said that Harrison’s name has often come up when he’s talking to fellow signal-callers who had to face the menace they called “Deebo,” and there’s a theme that pops up.

“I have talked to many quarterbacks that were scared to death of him. I was scared to death […]

Big Ben, Movie Star!!

From Brogan Noey, at Yardbarker:

“Steelers Legend Ben Roethlisberger Set To Star In Movie”

Roethlisberger will be part of a very star-studded cast in this movie. Cris Collinsworth, Eric Dickerson, Joe Buck, Sean McVay, Kirk Herbstreit, Larry Fitzgerald and more impressive names from the sports world will be featured. The movie tells the story of the first ever NFL game and all of the events surrounding it.

On IMDB, it is said that Roethlisberger will be playing himself in the movie and that’s all that is known about his role and how much he will be in the movie. On the movies official movie poster, Roethlisberger is the first name listed so his presence in the film must be fairly substantial.

The movie has slowly been releasing in certain areas of the country, but it will release in all NFL cities on November 22nd. The film is a biopic of sorts with actual actors who will be acting out the story of how the first NFL game came to be and what happened during the game.

Throughout the movie, NFL players of past and present will be giving their opinions of how the NFL came to be, what they learned from the story, and other fun details about the history of the NFL. This is likely what Roethlisberger will be doing in this movie.
